It is however possible to request the grant during your board year. This must be done up to 2 months after the start of the academic year. After the board year a prove has to be handed in to show that you have been really entitled to the grant. This final request has to be handed in no later than the February 1 at the University Funds Committee (UFC, ufc rug.nl ) in the year after your board year.
In this case you have to request the grant up to 2 months after the start of the academic year.

The three categories are (in correct order):
- Student associations and sports clubs.

- Other and cultural organizations.
|Academic year||Category to be re-evaluated|
|2018-2019||Sport and student associations|
